I believe the one on their website is for their "new" trigger. The one the OP refers to will be the result of a lawsuit that they settled Friday and is likely not in their website yet.
The new recall is for ALL 700s from the very first ones on up.

Oh ok......I didn't realize that. I'll keep my eyes posted. But still, I really doubt I'll send mine in. I mean, I've had the rifle since 85' and never a problem, so can't see how one would start now....
One of mine is older than dirt. I also have a new one that has never been loaded.
Surely there will be Remington authorized repairs locally. Maybe? Hopefully? }:>
This not just Model 700 and Model 7 triggers.
"The settlement covers more than a dozen models, specifically the Model 700, Seven, Sportsman 78, 673, 710, 715, 770, 600, 660, XP-100, 721, 722 and 725."
<sigh> Let me just go look that up for you............When it shows up on a reliable news source, I'll pay more attention.
If approved, this will be in ADDITION to the RECALL which has been in place for some time, and which currently appears on the Remington website.HOUSTON, Dec. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On Dec. 5, 2014, papers were filed seeking approval of a proposed settlement of two economic class-action lawsuits of certain Remington bolt-action centerfire firearms that contain either a Walker trigger mechanism, or a trigger mechanism which utilizes a "trigger connector."
The filings triggered multiple news reports that mistakenly conveyed the proposed agreement in significant fashions that require immediate clarification.
This culminates from extensive mediator-supervised negotiations between lawyers for those concerned about the triggers and Remington, who while denying there is any cause for concern, always desires to ensure that its customers are satisfied with Remington products.
- These settlements are not recalls.
- These settlements are not any admission that the products are defective or unsafe.
- These settlements are an opportunity for any concerned consumers who have the Remington Model 700, Seven, Sportsman 78, 673, 710, 715, 770, 600, 660, XP-100, 721, 722 and 725 rifles with either a Walker trigger mechanism, or a trigger mechanism which utilizes a "trigger connector" to have Remington install a new trigger.
- The benefits under the settlement, including the trigger replacement program, will not be in place until after court approval of the settlement and full notice will go out at that time.
A joint press release will be issued to better explain details of the proposed settlement.

Riiiiiiiiiiighhhht. It's not a "recall", it's just an opportunity being offered to get your gun fixed for free, if you so desire, while through our lawyer we're not admitting any fault. Meaning: it was cheaper to settle out of court and offer to replace triggers, than to lose the lawsuit and have to replace triggers. :lol:Good info, I like the part that says it is not a recall but a trigger replacement!
I sent two of my 700's in...You can identify if yours is affected by serial number...if they tell you 12 weeks...take that with a grain of salt as I sent mine in May...got back in OCT...They provide the boxes and good tracking...just REALLY backed up on repair/replacement...I got a new triggers on mine...
